Hi! If I enter a number to the quantity box of a product and press the Enter key, the product is being added to the cart, although I have not filled in the required fiels. As well as clicking the cart button, entering a quantity should also trigger the "Required field" check. Kind regards, Gerald

ReqText Plugin version 1.60

This "problem" occures when a script has some sort of error. Please check for any other plugins using any jQuery / JavaScript which could trigger this issue.

Also check, if you have made some changes to the source files of ReqText, accidently a mistake has slipped in. ReqText V1.60 works correctly in a newly installed VirtueMart environment using the correct configured required fields.
Even when a quantity is entered using the [ENTER] key.

Bug? That's not a bug, that's a feature. :-)

Hi! Thank you for your reply. The only changes to the source files I have written to you in my tickets - they do not have any effect on that. It seems as if that issue was connected somehow with my template. How can I find out, what is the difference between pressing the 'Add to cart' button and entering a quantity? Thank you for any useful hint! Kind regards, Gerald

There should not be any difference between using [ENTER], entering a quantity or clicking the Add to cart button. If some how an error occurs on a page in any used script and comes in conflict with the custom*.js script for the required fields - the required script get's bypassed.

You've find out the template is/was causing the conflict - which could be the reason this issue appears.

Hello! If I correctly interpreted /plugins/vmcustom/reqtext/assets/js/customvmprices.js:15, you are checking for required fields solely on clicking the add-to-cart button. But you do not on entering a number into the quantity box, nor on entering something in a text product field, nor on pressing the Space or Enter key on the add-to-cart button. In other words: You check the validity of the form submission on _clicking_ the add-to-cart button, only - in all other ways of submitting the form you do not check for the required fields. Please confirm. And could you, please, have a look on fixing that - thank you very much in advance! Kind regards, Gerald

The Add-to-cart button is the only way to send the filled form. If you press ENTER it actually presses the Add to Cart Button.

Just tested on https://demo.uwix.nl to enter a number and press the ENTER button. The required fields still popup. Also after using TAB to switch to the Add to Cart button and using SPACE and ENTER the result is the same.

It's not usefull to check every seperate field because using ENTER is still just sending the form or better said "it presses the Add to Cart button".

We'll do some more testing later this week, just to be sure.

Hi! Thank you for your reply. Your hints led me to the real source of the issue: The template I am using wrapped the add-to-cart input field with a button element having the same name and type, which snatched away the click event from the input element. And as you are triggering the click event with the selector 'input.addtocart-button' instead of '*[name="addtocart"]', all kinds of submitting the form ignored the 'required check', except hitting the add-to-cart button directly ;)

Will you fix that in the next release?

The ReqText plugin does function correctly using templates and the current VM version. Because of the template your are describing an issue occurs.

The question is if we should adapt the ReqText sourcecode to this and could that be the beginning of more request to adapt the plugin to existing templates? For now there are no planes changing the working script included in the ReqText plugin.
